Here is a close up of the neckline and buttons. To be really creative with a print like this, you could sew on buttons of the different colors of the roses in the print, and maybe even find buttons shaped like roses. When I laid out the patterns, I did not notice that I got all print going the other way,(the rose bouquets are upside down) but I wear it at home, anyway. This is one thing you really have to be careful about when dealing with some kinds of prints. If you make mistakes with your sewing, you can still use them.
Fabric is 100% cotton, and does not need ironing if dryer is used. If line-dried, always needs ironin, however, with prints, wrinkles do not show as badly. This was higher priced at about $4.50 a yard, but it takes an average of 4 yards to make a simple dress or skirt and blouse, using patterns noted in previous posts.
You really do not need a painting to inspire you to make a dress from beautiful fabric. Just check out the roses in your garden, or look at the beautiful meadows. I thought these were a lot like the fabric here. This fabric is also a decorator weight fabric, used for various household things, so it is very sturdy and takes a lot of wear and tear and washings.
You have a lot more choice, and control over the colors and styles of your garment, when you sew, or get someone to sew for you. It is almost a guarantee that you will not see a dress exactly like yours, on anyone else. That makes you an individual, a non-c0nformist, and independent.
